Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston joins Martin Scorsese's The Irishman

After the overwhelmingly positive reaction which Timur Bekmambetov 's BEN-HUR received last year, Jack Huston can pretty much take his pick of projects, which includes joining the all-star cast of Martin Scorsese 's THE IRISHMAN. Okay, I'm kidding about that first part, but Deadline reports that Huston really will be reuniting with his Boardwalk Empire executive...

Robert De Niro on why Netflix is the right home for The Irishman

It seemed as though THE IRISHMAN would never happen. After all, a Martin Scorsese crime-drama which would see the great director reunite with Robert De Niro , Joe Pesci , and Harvey Keitel , with Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale along for the ride as well? No way, and for some time it seemed that THE IRISHMAN, along with its embarrassingly talented cast, seemed too good to be...

It's official: Joe Pesci joins the cast of Martin Scorsese's The Irishman

It's a project which not many of us thought would ever be realized, but Martin Scorsese 's THE IRISHMAN seems as though it's actually going to happen, and even more amazingly, Scorsese's dream cast is officially coming together. Based upon Charles Brandt’s "I Heard You Paint Houses," THE IRISHMAN will chronicle the career of Frank “The...

Martin Scorsese says The Irishman will be tonally different from Goodfellas

Martin Scorsese 's GOODFELLAS is one of the few movies which I make a point of watching each and every year. It's a truly excellent crime drama filled with utterly fantastic performances from Robert De Niro , Ray Liotta and Joe Pesci , but I'm sure I don't need to tell you that. It would be a tall order to follow up that film, but Martin Scorsese told The...

Fede Alvarez addresses why Girl in the Spider's Web must have a new cast

On Monday we got word that plans for THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER’S WEB with Fede Alvarez attached to direct would be moving forward for an October 2018 release. Though this pleased the fancies of admirers of the books and/or movies, this news came with a punch in the arm in the form of word that all of the cast from David Fincher ’s GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO would...

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequel to spin its web in October 2018

Wow! According to BoxOfficeMojo , David Fincher 's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (2011) managed to snare a worldwide total of $232.6 million in ticket sales before exiting theaters. No wonder Sony is looking to spin another web of money and entertainment out of the planned release of THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB, a sequel based off of the crime drama from...

Fede Alvarez eyed to direct Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel at Sony

Five years have gone by since the American THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO came out, introducing the character of Lisbeth Salander to the mainstream, movie-going public. The movie won critical acclaim and received several Oscar nominations, including Best Actress for Rooney Mara ’s superb work as Salander (and winning Best Film Editing). Since then we’ve been wondering if...

Rooney Mara wants to return as Lisbeth Salander but isn't "holding out hope"

For many, Rooney Mara will be their Lisbeth Salander. Noomi Rapace did a marvelous job in the original, but the American remake was many people's first introduction to the character, and resulted in an Oscar nomination for Mara. The main difference between Rapace and Mara is that the former actually got to finish her journey with the character, following up THE GIRL WITH THE...

HBO gives you a slightly longer taste of their limited series The Night Of

It's been a slow burn of promotional material for HBO as they've tried building interest for their limited series THE NIGHT OF, which premieres in mid-July on the cable network. We've gotten the slightest of glimpses at what the series is about, but, in typical teaser fashion, it's been enough to pique one's curiosity. Clearly something went wrong one night between...

Cast This: Lisbeth Salander AKA The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

In 2009 the first adaptation of author Stieg Larsson’s award-winning Millennium series, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, was released starring Noomi Rapace as the titular character. In 2011 we were given an American version directed by David Fincher and starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara now playing Lisbeth Salander. Fincher’s movie, which I still feel is...

As far as Rooney Mara knows, she may be back for Dragon Tattoo sequel

When David Fincher 's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO remake turned out not to be quite as successful as the studio had hoped, it seemed doubtful that adaptions of "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest" from the same team would follow. Then, just a little over a week ago, word broke that Sony was looking to ressurect the...
